A record night of racing (90 entrants) with three heats and 79 finishers. The best results for many years and the first time electronic timing was used. Another World record goes to Lavinia Petrie.
The third heat was a tight tussle all the way with Shane Grund (M40+ ) putting the pressure on a couple of laps from the finish coming in first in an excellent time of 31:10.9 (88.2% age graded AG) closely followed by Tim Bryant (M40+) 31:23.4 (87.6% AG) and Abdi Rhoble 31:33.9 (83.3% AG) third.
Lavinia Petrie (W75+) collected another World record with a time of 49:54.5 (92.4% AG).
Other excellent performances were Celia Massie-Bertei (W55+)42:07.1 (83.0% AG), Liz Lowther (W70+) 49:36.5 (82.9% AG), Sho Waller (M30+) 32:34.5 (80.7% AG), Mark Clarence (M55+) 37:40.1 (81.5% AG), Garth Calder (M60+) 38:46.2 (83.5% AG), Allan Long (M65) 38:36.2 (87.9% AG), Greg WIlson (M70+) 42:40.35 (82.7%), Yassine Belaabed (M70+) 40:49.92 (87.3% AG).
In addition to the performances many individuals achieved personal milestones in their respective age groups. A big crowd stayed back for the presentation of medals to all the place getters. A true Masters 30+ community vibe was in evidence.
Congratulations to all members who competed and made the night such a positive experience.
